WATCH: Rep. Jim Jordan Calls for Google CEO to Testify Before Congress



What is it going to take for giant tech companies like Google to act right? We constantly hear lip-service from Silicon Valley tech companies, but nothing really ever changes. Maybe it’s time to give Google CEO Sundar Pichai no alternative but to face questions into their practices by representatives of the people, like those in the House Oversight Committee.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) seems to echo that sentiment.

Jordan sat down with Media Research Center (MRC) President L. Brent Bozell to discuss multiple topics, in particular bias and censorship in social media.

“I was glad we had Twitter and Facebook in last week in front of the Energy and Commerce Committee,” Jordan told Bozell. “I’d like to have them in front of the Oversight Committee.”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg faced questions from members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee last week, and conspicuous by their absence was any representative from Google. Pichai was supposed to represent his own company at the hearing, but instead an empty chair took his place.

After Bozell brought up Pichai’s absence from the committee hearing, Jordan intimated that he would like to have Pichai actually show up to a hearing conducted by the House Oversight Committee in order to determine whether Google was up to the task of being a neutral platform, “as they portray themselves.”
